Drawn from the Brooklyn Museum’s renowned American art collection, this exhibition features 57 paintings and sculptures that highlight changes in American art and culture during the fascinating half-century from 1910 through 1960. The works of art on view were produced by leading artists of the day, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Rockwell Kent, Joseph Stella, Grandma Moses, and Norman Rockwell. Complementing the Delaware Art Museum’s own holdings, American Moderns explores how American artists engaged modernity by creating cubist experiments, images of modern structures, Americana, and stylized renditions of traditional subjects such as landscapes and still-life arrangements.                  

American Moderns, 1910–1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell has been organized by the Brooklyn Museum.
The Delaware Art Museum presentation of this exhibition is generously supported by the Johannes R. and Betty P. Krahmer American Art Exhibition Fund, DuPont, and individual donors.

Additional support is provided by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
